Answers
1. (2)
H % J  = H < J
J © N  = J = N
N @ R  = N > R
Therefore, H < J = N > R
Conclusions:
I. R % J  = R < J ( True )
II. H @ J  =H > J ( Not true)
III. N @ J   =N > H (True)

2. (5)
M % J  = M  > J
J $ T  = J = T
T © N  =T = N
Therefore, M > J = T = N
Conclusions:
I. N # J  = N = J ( true )
II. T % M  = T < M ( true)
III. M @ N  =M > N ( true)

3. (3)
D © K -> D = K
K # F -> K = F
F @ P -> F > P
Therefore, D = K = F > P
Conclusions:
I. P @ D -> P > D ( Not true )
II. K # P -> K = P ( Not true )
III.F $ D -> F = D ( True )

4. (4)
K # N -> K = N
N $ T -> N = T
T % J -> T > J
Therefore, K = N = T > J
Conclusions:
I. J @ N -> J > N ( Not true )
II. K @ T -> K > T ( Not true )
III.T @ K -> T > K ( Not true )
